Program Announcement: Hansen Summer Institute on Leadership and International Cooperation

A fully funded program for college age scholars offers a unique leadership experience in international cooperation.

San Diego, CA – The Hansen Summer Institute, based at the University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences is currently accepting applications for its June 30 – July 21, 2014 program.

Fully funded by a generous grant from the Fred J. Hansen Foundation, the Hansen Summer Institute will take place in San Diego and involve assembling University students from  the United States (5 students) and abroad (15 students) from a variety of developing countries and regions of social strife. All travel, room and board, and program expenses are covered by the Hansen Foundation. The 2014 summer institute represents our fifth year of operation; 105 fellows have thus far gone through our training and life-changing experience.  This year students will live, work, and become friends together at the University of San Diego, a beautiful campus that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

A primary goal of the program focuses on creating an international community of college-age scholars (ages 18-25) who will use their summer experience to foster lasting friendships and acquire a common practical understanding of a more peaceful future. Program elements involve training in the latest leadership skills of conflict resolution, mediation, public speaking and cross cultural education. Classroom training complements local excursions to San Diego historical attractions and cultural events, such as the Mayor’s office, the U.S.- Mexico border, Sea World, the San Diego Zoo and a harbor cruise. Hansen Summer Institute training provides participants with hands-on tools for resolving conflict for application and re-direction to their own situations at home.


Applications from international students will be accepted until January 12, 2014. Applications from U.S. students will be accepted until February 16, 2014.
